Ryuseiken Battodo

Japanese swordfighting

looking for resourses that may help us with learning the basic Ryuseiken Batto-Do standards

Greeting esteem members of our Ryuseiken Batto-Do group. It is an honor and a privilege for Maria and I to be new members of Tucson’s Batto-Do group.

I would like to ask the group if anyone knows of on-line resources for helping us correctly practice the first Kihon Kame Waza, Kiri Waza, Kihon Kata (i.e. step by step photos and or video) and prepare for Saturday’s training so we can practice the various important basics we have been introduced to by our honorable Shihan John McGraugh.

Arigato gozaimasu to each one of you.

Maria and Peter Rice

If Somone in the Ryuseiken Battodo group could do something similar by posting videos for the Ryuseiken Katas on Youtube it would help a lot.
(Especially for those of us who are in living in Flagstaff where there is no Eastern sword style classes offered within walking distance of N.A.U. Campus.)
They could also post them in High definition windows media player format on this official site.

Posting these demonstration videos on Youtube would also increase global awareness of the Ryuseiken school of Swordsmanship.
This could increase local membership and support.

If someone skilled in the art of visual art could draw Kata digrams for motion:

As well as foot placement:

That would be incredibly useful too. :)

Just a suggestion,

Thank you,
Christopher Arendt

The Knighthawk Armoury builds some interesting realistic looking goshinken. They're expensive but they claim to be pretty durable (not yet tested by us).
